1. Requirements: Global projects offer the challenge of both global and country requirements. To make sure nothing is forgotten put together a prioritization scheme for both types of requirements.
2. Estimation: Don’t forget that a global project will include extra costs that you didn’t have to worry about on a co-located project. Expenses could include team member travel time and global communication. Make sure to take all costs into consideration and estimate thoroughly.
3. Scheduling: Unexpected scheduling conflicts may arise unless you do your research. Will a major holiday fall during the project? Could snowstorms, floods, or other natural disasters be expected at this time of year? Always leave room in the schedule for unforeseen problems.
